Featured Quilt - The Innova Master Award For Contemporary Artistry at Houston 2023

Here's another glimpse into the winner's circle for the 2023 Houston International Quilt Festival. Akiko Matsumura took home The Innova Master Award For Contemporary Artistry (Sponsored by Innova) for her quilt Summer Shower (76” x 77”).

Akiko's quilt was inspired by one of the things that most quilters the world over take inspiration from, the beauty of the natural world around her. She says, “On a summer morning, when I looked up on the walkway where I usually walk, I saw a slight blue sky among the many leaves. The sight was very pleasant to me, and I love this place. I made this quilt with that feeling in mind.”

The Quilt Show Puzzle: A Coded Love Message

"Be My Valentine" by Vicki Conley

Vicki has developed a class, known as her Breaking the Code class, based on her quilt Be My Valentine. The design of the quilt itself is the Morse code phrase for "Be My Valentine" translated into abstract fabric design. Vicki has a technique where you can translate people's phrases into Morse code and then make that translation into an abstract design, which forms the basis for the class.
